Alfredo Pizza Recipe

If you cover the delicious creamy Alfredo sauce with enough yummy vegetables, it helps you to forget that you are eating something with cream cheese in it. :)  I like to buy the Neufchatel cream cheese to reduce the guilt, as well.  This is one of our favorite recipes.  You can also find a tasty recipe for regular pizza (which uses the same crust recipe) in a past blog post.

Alfredo Pizza

Prepare Alfredo sauce at least a half hour ahead to allow time for sauce to thicken before beginning pizza.

2 teaspoons yeast
½ cup lukewarm water  
2 teaspoons sugar
1¼ cups warm milk or soy milk  
2 cups rice flour
1½ cups tapioca flour
2½ teaspoons xanthan gum
½ cup dried potato flakes
1 teaspoon salt
1½ teaspoons Italian Seasoning
¼ cup shortening
2 tablespoons butter

4 ounces cream cheese
⅛ cup butter
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup milk
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon pepper

5 pieces bacon, fried
2 chicken breasts, fried or grilled
¼ teaspoon seasoned salt
1 cup grated cheese
Additional toppings could include artichoke hearts, green onions, sliced banana peppers, fresh tomatoes, green peppers, mushrooms, olives, yellow summer squash, and extra Parmesan cheese

  1. Combine cream cheese, butter, Parmesan cheese, milk, garlic powder, and pepper in medium saucepan and cook until smooth and warm. Refrigerate for ½ hour or more.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  3. Pour warm water into a small bowl, and sprinkle yeast and sugar on top of water.
  4. Microwave milk until warm.
  5. Combine dry ingredients-rice flour, tapioca flour, xanthan gum, potato flakes and seasoning- in a heavy-duty kitchen mixer bowl.
  6. Mix yeast mixture, warm milk, shortening, and butter into dry ingredients. Beat at high speed for 3 minutes.
  7. Spray or grease 2 large pizza pans. Divide dough into 2 equal portions.
  8. Place hands in plastic bags and press dough evenly onto pans until thin. Bake 10 minutes on middle shelf of oven.
  9. Cut cooked bacon and chicken into small pieces. Add seasoned salt to chicken and stir well. Spread sauce over pizza crusts. Top with cooked bacon, cooked chicken, grated cheese and desired additional toppings. Bake for approximately 10 minutes.

Serves 9 to 14
